Brutale 1078RR bhp specs

Hello. I was under impression that the 1078 had 154 bhp. I mean, everyone here always mentioned that and the data's also scattered around on the web. However MV's site claims just 146.8 (b)hp. Why's that?

think the lower BHP is more accurate as MV used to exagerate the figures, but when HD bought the company they released the more accurate figures.

Mine did a stock dyno of 133.5 rwhp and 77fp torque.

B750 and B1078 RR both gone now.

Hand built to the point of having a 20 bhp difference? I didn't know the MV were exaggerating, I was once told that they were indeed underestimating their figures. It probably doesn't matter, was just looking to compare the raw specs of 910vs1078vs1090 but it seems now such a comparison would be useless.

Alll I know is that at full throttle my front wheel is in the air at about 7k in first and second...maybe even 3rd ...never tried as I run out of road here....and I weigh 240 lbs. so don't worry yourself over it.

My Duc. 1198 I had dynoed at 156 RHP...so call it 170 at the crank. I can't use it on the street, and probably not even on the track. The point being, is that my Ducati is probably faster, and defintitely has more torque...but I can't tell because neither of them can I pin the throttle to redline on the street....and I don't have time to get out to the track. I don't even know if the MV has a shift light or even what the redline is...I have never redlined my Ducati or seen it's shift light either, and beleive me I ride fast, especially out in the mountains...THEY ARE BOTH TOO FUKKKING FAST FOR THE STREET to do it sanely.....

If I had to call it, I would say the 1090rr maybe acutally "quicker" than the duc. due to the gearing. THe Duc. has more grunt....But I digress..I have been riding over 20yrs and and any model brutale has more than enough balls to rock your world. It's always a coin toss which bike I'm going to ride and the MV usually wins becasue it is sooooo much easier on my body, and a fun little ride to poke around on. THe Duc. is like climbing into a cockpit and readying yourself for a dogfight. You are not always up for it.

My 2 cents.

One of the decent American mags (can see online) does a dyno test and gives you real figures - can't remember which one though !



Oh Yes - and first 4th gear wheelie last weekend

Sorry boys and f4 lovers. since I brought it up

Truth is, as cool as this bike is, I never ride it. It's 10 -1 on the brutale and it's still a coin toss which bike I'm going to ride when I do the twisties. 50/50 unless I really feel like taking to the edge, then I run with the Duc.
